Newly Acquired Netia Showcases Manreo at IBC
Netia, a new subsidiary of GlobeCast, highlighted its Manreo software range at IBC2008, including the new Hypercast IP Recorder and Hypercast IP player modules for Manreo. These two software modules allow Manreo users to simplify the acquisition and distribution of IP-based content.
The Hypercast IP Recorder and Hypercast IP Player modules reduce the complexity of taking SDI video from the camera to editing by eliminating the need for a video server. A simple file server and a facility's existing architecture can instead be leveraged for acquisition and delivery of digital video. The Hypercast IP Recorder streamlines acquisition of SDI content, accepting the encoded IP stream and delivering media to the file server, where it's available for editing, archiving, and automatic indexing.
Netia also showcased its Warehouse Web Version 2.0 audio and video broadcast and display platform. This software solution provides companies with a system for centralizing, sharing, and viewing audio, image, and video archives, and subsequently broadcasting them across multiple distribution channels (Web portals, mobile devices, etc.). Warehouse Web 2.0 was developed using the REST (Representational State Transfer) architecture and includes XML Web Services. It offers up to four interfaces: Catalog Interface, Terminology Interface, Media Interface and Monitoring Interface.
The company also showcased the Manreo Video Recorder Module and its Media Logging range in Amsterdam.
